Biermin Will
Open All-Star,
Drilng Aug.12
Green Bay to Face 35
Collegiate Standouts
Before 90,000 Fans
Coach Bernie Bierman, who has re-
cently returned to Minnesota from
the wars, will open the first practice
of the 1945 college all-star team Aug.
12 at Northwestern's practice field
in Evanston, Ill.
First Practice
This will mark the first session for
the '45 contingent of all-stars, who
will meet the Green Bay Packers on
Soldier Field in Chicago. The game
will take place Aug. 30 and will be
played under the lights.
Coach Charley Lambeau's charges
will start their practice on the 9th of
this month. Coach Lambeau will put
his men through strenuous drills, be-
cause he does not want to lose to
the all-stars, ..as he did in 1937. That
was the year that Sammy Baugh toss-
ed a 22-yard pass to Gaynell Tinsley
of LSU for the touchdown which
downed the Packers, 6-0.
Rugged Drills
Even though the men from Green
bay are beginning to practice three
days in advance, Coach Bierman will
have a decided advantage in that he
has the best men on the college var-
sity elevens of 1944 to choose from.
These men are young and full of
pep, and are ready for the rugged
exercises which they will be put
through during practice drills.
Also, Coach Bierman will have at
his disposal the assistance of coaches
Howie Odell of Yale, Ray Eliot of
Illinois, Jeff Carvath of Southern
California, and Jim Lookabaugh of
Oklahoma A. & M. Three of these
aides piloted undefeated elevens in
90,000 To Attend
The game will be played this year
at Chicago's Soldier Field, which can,
seat 104,000 people at a football game.
Some 90,000 fans will attend this
year's' football classic. All receipts,
after expenses are paid, are donated
to Chicago charities by the Chicago
Tribune Welfare Fund.
Lambeau will have in his camp 26
of the 28 men who brought him the
championship in 1944. In addition,
10 newcomers will augment this year's
squad. Bierman, on the other hand,t
Will have 35 of the best college play-
ers in the country on his squad, all
of which should make the 1945 all-
star game a very interesting one.

Gridders Drill
For Saturday's
Intra-Squad Tilt
Stress Pass Defense
In Day's Scrimmage;
Line Prospects Good
With the 1945 summer football
practice ending this Saturday, the
Wolverinesran through offensiveand
defensive drills yesterday, prior to
this Saturday's game against the
Junior Varsity.
Practice consisted, for the most
part, of scrimmaging between the
Blues and the Whites, with candi-
dates for the different positions al-
ternating the play.
The scrimmaging opened with
the Whites on the offense and the
Blues on the defense. Passing was
stressed by the Whites in order to
give the Blues practice on pass de-
fense. Many of the White passes
were intercepted, but an equal
number were run off successfully.
After the Whites had finished with
their passing plays, the Blues took
to the offensive. With Ponsetto, Yer-
ges, Redman and Hutter rotating
at the quarterbackhposition, the
Blues ran wild over the J. V's.
The line looks very good, with
Watts at center, Tomasi, Soboleski
and Lintol at guard, and Bahlow at
end the standouts to date.
However, in the ball handlingj
department, the tea.m seems to be
a litle weary. There were many
fumbles which caused the Blue 1
squad to lose much yardage. Most
of these fumbles were made on t
lateral plays, while the running at-C
tack looked very good.N
The team is beginning to show the
"scars of battle," with many of the
players sporting bandages. This is
understandable,tbecause the players
on the football team have been going
strong since July 2.nl
Drills will end this Saturday with t
a practice game between the Blues
and the Whites at the University of a
Michigan Stadium, similar to the 1
one played at the stadium last week. n
Following the contest scheduled for
Saturday, the team will rest until
August 27, when fall drills will be-
gin. These drills will be a continua- F
tion of what was stressed over the

VWhat's What in the Majors_

Ponsetto Stars
On Grid Team
Joe Shines in Punting
Blocking, and Defense
To aquotea nationally circulated
football annual, "Michigan's 1945
football team is'literally being built
around a guy named Joe, captain of
this year's Wolverine squad."
Joe's last name is Ponsetto. He is
a 19-year old, six-foot, 185-pound
quarterback, well-known, I presume,
to the readers of this article. A Navy
trainee, Ponsetto is the only return-
ing full-time starter from last year's
varsity eleven.
Lettermen Are Nucleus
As such, he, with the returning
lettermen Hal Watts and John Lin-
tol, constitute the nucleus of this
fall's Wolverine grid crew. His ex-
perience is counted on to shepherd
the neophite Michigan backfield
through the tough schedule that lies
In addition to his football "brains"
as evidenced by his ability to call
"payoff" plays, Ponsetto is a vicious
blocker and a demon on the defense.
Last season he frequently cleared the
way for scatbacks Gene Derricotte
and Bob Nussbaumer on their end
sweeps, and, backing up the line on
defense, posed a stout obstacle to
the opposition's aggressive move-
ments. To top it off, the Maize and
Blue "field general" was selected to
the '45 All-American Blocking Team,
establishing him as one of the top
blockers in the country.
Good Kicker
Last year, Ponsetto came into his
own as a kicker. Although he had
neer taken to booting before, Coach
Crisler's complaint that he lacked a
man to handle conversions and kick-
offs spurred the Wolverine quarter-
back to action. Working hard at the
task, subjected to some.good-natured
"razzing" by his teammates, he final-
ly obtained more than satisfactory

Boston Tapped for 15
Hits; Trout Wins 10th
York's Two Homers Drive in Four Bengal
Runs; Culberson Also Hits Circuit Blow
Daily Sports Editor
DETROIT, Aug. 9 - The long-awaited explosion of Detroit Tiger bats
finally materialized today as the Bengals combed the offerings of two Boston
Red Sox hurlers for 15 hits, six of them for extra bases, and an 11-5 victory
over the Bostonians to preserve their one-game American League lead over
the Washington Senators.
Big Rudy York led the Tiger parade with a pair of long home runs
into the left field stands to drive in four of the Detroit tallies. York's cir-
cuit clouts came in successive times at bat in successive innings. He also
added a single to his day's collection of hits.

Paul (Dizzy) Trout went the dis-
tance for Detroit, giving up 10 hits,
including a homer by Leon Cul-
herson, for his 10th victory of the
season. Trout got off to a shaky
start, yielding three runs in the
first three innings, but settleddown
as his mates handed him a com-
manding lead and coasted the rest
of the way.
Hank Greenberg also got in on
the slugging bee, connecting for a
pair of doubles and a single in four
trips to the plate before being lifted
for a pinch-runner. Second baseman
IRed Borom. subbing for the ailing
Eddie Mayo, collected two singles
and a double. Every other Tiger with
the exception of Shortstop Joe Hoov-
er hit safely at least once.
Detroit jumped into a two-run lead
in the first inning on Greenberg's
long double with two men on base,
but the Red Sox came back to tie
it up in the second and added an-
other run to lead 3-2 as.the bottom
half of the third came up.
The Tigers moved ahead to stay
in the home half of the third with
a four-run splurge climawed by
York's first four-ply swat. Clem
Hausmann, who had relieved Bos-
ton starter Emmett O'Neill, fell
victim to another four-run rally
in the fourth. York's home run
was again the telling blow. This
second smash fell into the second
deck 365 feet from home plate.
Detroit completed its total in the
sixth with a single run on three suc-
cessive singles. Culberson's homer
provided the fourth Boston marker
in the eighth, and the Red Sox
wound up the scoring with another
single counter in the ninth.

Detroit Buys
Pitcher Tobin
DETROIT, Aug. 9-(P-The De-
troit Tigers today purchased Jim
Tobin, 32-year-olc righthand pitch-
er, from the Boston Braves in a
straight cash transaction.
Tobin, a National Leaguer for
nine years, hurled two successive no-
hit games for the Braves last sea-
son, blanking Brooklyn 2-0 and Chi-
cago 5-0, although the, no-hitter
against Chicago was achieved in a
five-inning game.
General Manager Jack Zeller of
the Tigers did not disclose the pur-
chase price,but saidTobin would re-
port immediately.
Tobin's acquisition is Detroit's sec-
ond in two days - both pitchers,
Yesterday the Tigers took righthan-
der George Caster from the St. Louis
Browns on waivers.
Wilson's Skul
Is Fractured
DETROIT, Aug. 9-Jim Wilson,
23-year old Boston Red Sox pitcher
who suffered a fractured skull in
Wednesday's game with the Detroit
Tigers when. hit by a line drive off
HanksGreenberg's bat, was reported
recovering today following an oper-
ation at Henry Ford Hospital.
The operation was necessary to
remove fragments of bones shattered
by the impact and to sew up a sev-
ered artery.
